This week, Americans across the country celebrated the 77th anniversary of Social Security. It was on August 17, 1935, that President Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed Social Security into law, making a commitment to assist our seniors in their golden years. It is a promise our nation has kept for more than 7 decades and one that we must continue to honor.
Today, more than ever, our seniors rely on Social Security to help pay for prescription drugs, groceries, and any number of other unexpected expenses. As your Representative, I intend to keep the promises made to our seniors and the millions of Americans who have paid into and will someday rely on Social Security benefits.
